Rotterdamsebaan road project

The Hague’s road network is under strain. Every day heavy traffic accumulates on the Utrechtsebaan. Cars trying to find an escape cause extra congestion on the roads in and around The Hague, Rijswijk and Voorburg-West. To improve accessibility to The Hague and the region, the municipality will be working to construct the Rotterdamsebaan in the coming years.

This will be the new connecting road between the motorway at the Ypenburg interchange (A4/A13) and the Centrumring. The road will traverse the municipalities of The Hague and Leidschendam-Voorburg and will be located close to Rijswijk. The opening of the Rotterdamsebaan should relieve the congestion on the Utrechtsebaan as well as other major roads.


Construction of the Rotterdamsebaan began in 2014 with moving cables and pipes and redesigning a number of roads in the Binckhorst area. The first vehicles will drive through the Victory Boogie Woogie Tunnel on at the end of January 2021.

The schedule for the construction of the Rotterdamsebaan for the coming years is as follows:

Period Activity
2016 - 2019 Construction of the starting shaft and approach road for the tunnel in the Vlietzone
2016 - 2019 Reconstruction of the Laan van Hoornwijck
2016 - 2019 Construction of the receiving shaft and approach road for the tunnel in the Binckhorst
2017 - 2018 Adaptions to existing roads in Ypenburg interchange
2018 Drilling of the Victory Boogie Woogie Tunnel
2017 - 2020 Construction of the Molenvlietpark
2018 - 2019 Completion of tunnel, approach roads and connection to existing roads
2019 - 2021 Installation of equipment and test phase
January 2021 The Rotterdamsebaan is finished and will be put into operation

Rotterdamsebaan route

The Rotterdamsebaan will be around 4 kilometres in length and it will start at the Ypenburg interchange. It will be accessible from the A4 and A13 via the Laan van Delfvliet and the Laan van Hoornwijck. Thereafter the road will be partially depressed in the Vlietzone, going completely underground close by the car park at Drievliet and the golf course. The underground section of the Rotterdamsebaan will be 1,860 metres in length and it will run under the Westvlietweg, Voorburg-West, the Forum Hadriani archaeological site and the Binckhorst harbour. The road will then re-emerge at the surface in Binckhorst by the Zonweg. There it will connect to the Binckhorstlaan and the Mercuriusweg.
